Why Choose the Venetian Islands?
This island retreat is one of the most sought-after addresses in Miami Beach.

How Safe are the Venetian Islands?
Besides an overall ‘A+,’ the neighborhood-ranking site niche.com grades the Venetian Islands ‘A’ for ‘Good for Families’ and ‘A+’ for Nightlife. Living in this coastal district, residents enjoy the perks of island living in a highly secure environment. Security monitored access to most condo buildings and a toll plaza on the Venetian Causeway only enhances the sense of security and community among its residents.
Additionally, most of the Venetian Islands are made up of single-family homes, which further creates a strong sense of community. It’s no wonder then that the Venetian Causeway is a popular stretch for locals to catch the sunset, take a stroll, jog, bike, or even walk their dogs along its scenic sidewalks.
Best Restaurants in Venetian Islands
The only restaurant to the credit of the Venetian Islands is the Lido Bayside Grill, serving Mediterranean fare at The Standard Spa overlooking the water, and is definitely a local’s favorite. But just a short walk over a small bridge takes residents to neighborhood favorites such as Sardinia (authentic coastal Italian), Barceloneta (Spanish tapas), Lucali (Brooklyn pizza), Icebox Cafe, Zak the Baker, and Pubbelly Sushi at the Sunset Harbour shops, along with Dr. Smood juices, Delicious Raw Kitchen & Juice Bar, Panther coffee and Sushi Garage.
Shopping in Venetian Islands
Again, the Venetian Islands do not have any shopping options to their credit per se, but a short walk or drive delivers residents to the Sunset Harbour Shops and Lincoln Road Mall in South Beach or Bayside Marketplace in Downtown - maintaining that small community feel without compromising on the simple pleasures of life. Favorite boutiques in Sunset Harbor include Eberjey, Frankie Miami, Beach Boutique (one of South Beach’s best boutiques for years), and more.
Within a 10 minute walk or 5-minute drive, restaurants have a Fresh Market, Trader Joe’s and Publix grocery store, as well as hair salons, spas, and specialty fitness studios including Barry’s Bootcamp, Green Monkey Yoga, Modo Yoga, and Anatomy Fitness.
The Best Located Condos in Venetian Islands
We were spoilt for choice here, so we decided to name two condos as the best located in Venetian Islands. We choose the twin-tower 1000 Venetian Islands complex simply for its breathtaking views of the bay. And the Grand Venetian, as it is the fastest walk to all that South Beach has to offer; especially the tiny, yet power-packed neighborhood of Sunset Harbour with its Fresh Market, Publix, Trader Joe’s, yoga, bakeries, and banks.
